This horrific recession started in July 1981. Unemployment skyrocketed to a whopping 10.8 percent in November 1982 under the Reagan administration. Over 100,000 Americans lost their homes in 1982 and homelessness skyrocketed. Thirty years ago, Timothy Fitzgerald experienced America's worst recession while recovering from a disabling illness. As a young man in his thirties, Fitzgerald remembers its dire effects. People could not find jobs and some were forced to join the ranks of the homeless.

San Jose Community Activist and Author Timothy Fitzgerald Salutes Abraham Lincoln for Black History Month

Wed, 02 Feb 2011 00:01:00 GMT

San Jose community activist and author Timothy Fitzgerald salutes Abraham Lincoln for Black History Month. Abraham Lincoln was a life-long proponent of the anti-slavery movement. In 1837, at the age of 28, Lincoln made his first anti-slavery speech. In 1849, Lincoln during his term as Congressman co-sponsored a bill, which would have abolished slavery in the District of Columbia. In his campaign for United States senator in 1854, Lincoln declared his opposition to slavery. On January 1, 1863, Lincoln issued his historic Emancipation Proclamation, which abolished slavery in the confederate states. Lincoln later championed the passage of the Thirteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution, which abolished slavery throughout the United States. The United States Senate passed it in 1864 and later the House passed it on January 31, 1865. Lincoln was assassinated in April 1865. After Lincoln's death, the Thirteenth Amendment was ratified by the states on December 6, 1865.

Wed, 12 Jan 2011 00:01:00 GMT

San Jose homeless activist Timothy Fitzgerald joins CHAM Deliverance Ministry in commemorating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for his work on the Poor People's Campaign in the sixties. In late 1967, Dr. King co-founded the Poor People's Campaign in order to address the serious issues that poor people in America were facing. These issues included the lack of affordable housing and viable job opportunities. Many men of color were forced to join the military to fight the war in Vietnam, because they had no other options. On April 4, 1968, Dr. King was assassinated. After Dr. King's untimely death, the Poor People's Campaign continued its plan to stage a massive march in Washington, DC. In May 1968, there were massive protests and 50,000 people took up residence in a shanty town to demonstrate the plight of the poor in America.

Wed, 17 Nov 2010 00:01:00 GMT

In the United States, unemployed older workers who are 55 and older have been the hardest hit by the recession. A whopping 39.4 percent of unemployed older workers have experienced long-term unemployment. In this downturn economy, older workers have the highest rate of long-term unemployment in the country. Because of age-discrimination, many baby-boomers have been jobless for a very long time. They have exhausted their savings and 401ks. They may be no longer able to pay rent. As a result, some baby-boomers no longer have shelter. Baby-Boomer author and community activist Timothy Fitzgerald personally has experienced homelessness himself. Timothy Fitzgerald became unemployed after he was laid-off from his position as a community college instructor in 2005. After looking for work for almost a year, Mr. Fitzgerald quit his job search. He no longer could cope with the severe discrimination he experienced as an older person. As a result, he later lost his apartment at the age of 59 and became homeless and sought relief.

Wed, 06 Oct 2010 00:01:00 GMT

October 10, 2010 is World Homeless Day. In the United States, up to 3.5 million people experience homelessness each year. More and more in this horrible economy, there is a growing new homeless population, which is comprised of formerly middle class workers. Many were homeowners or apartment dwellers, who had good paying jobs. And through no fault of their own, they lost their livelihoods. Even with unemployment benefits, they were unable to pay for their mortgages or rent. As a result, they have suffered from foreclosures and evictions. Because some lack family support, they have turned to the streets as their shelter. They are the newly homeless. San Jose author and community activist Timothy Fitzgerald personally has experienced homelessness. Timothy Fitzgerald became unemployed after he was laid-off from his position as a community college instructor in 2005. After looking for work for almost a year, Mr. Fitzgerald ended his job search.

Thu, 22 Jul 2010 00:05:00 GMT

As a qualified historian, Timothy Fitzgerald authored "The Wawona Brotherhood: The San Jose State Campus Revolt" in which he chronicles his experiences at San Jose State University during the turbulent 1960s through the early 1970s. As a campus leader, Fitzgerald was a widely recognized authority in the 1960s at San Jose State. Fitzgerald reflects on the anniversary of the Nixon Doctrine on the Vietnam War. Students across the nation were outraged by the Nixon Doctrine, because it failed to bring American troops home immediately. On July 25, 1969, President Richard Nixon established the Nixon Doctrine under which American troops in Vietnam would slowly be replaced by South Vietnamese troops. According to the doctrine, South Vietnamese allies in the Vietnam War would be responsible for handling their own military defense. President Nixon later made his sole visit to Vietnam on July 30, 1969.

Sixties Activist Timothy Fitzgerald Reflects on the Fortieth Anniversary of the Invasion of Cambodia and Kent State Killings

Wed, 28 Apr 2010 00:01:00 GMT

At his book signing for his memoir "The Wawona Brotherhood: The San Jose State Campus Revolt," sixties activist and author Timothy Fitzgerald plans to discuss the fortieth anniversary of the United States' invasion of Cambodia and the Kent State killings. On April 29, 1970, President Nixon announced the invasion of Cambodia. Thus, he widened the war effort in South East Asia. At San Jose State University in California, this happened to coincide with a national conference of the New Mobilization. This thrust San Jose State into playing a key role of protesting the war in Cambodia the following weekend. The impressions taken throughout May 1970 into the summer of 1970 are reported in Fitzgerald's memoir.
